How to prepare for quantum computing cybersecurity threats

As well as keeping up to date so you can protect data being shipped and stored today from tomorrow’s attacks, you should also review data minimisation and management. Simply put, if you don’t collect and/or store it then it’s not an issue…:

[…] Post-quantum encryption standards will be finalized by NIST in the next year or so, suggests Kaafarani. He adds, “Now that finalist algorithms have been announced, businesses don’t need to wait to get quantum-secure–they must simply ensure that they design their security infrastructure to work with any of the shortlisted approaches that NIST is currently considering for standardization.” Check out the NIST’s page on post-quantum cryptography.
